Sony VAIO RM and FE Update

Following the release of the TZ, Sony today also improved two of its larger systems, pointing to future North American updates. The VAIO RM desktop now has as its base Intel's updated version of the 1.86GHz desktop Core 2 Duo with a full 4MB of level 2 cache; it also has the choice of a GeForce 8600 GTS versus the earlier 7600 GS, stepping up performance for optional Blu-Ray movie support as well as 3D. The system starts at $1,574 but climbs to $2,402 in its peak model.

The company's mid-range notebook, the 15.4-inch VAIO FE (pictured), also saw a boost in its baseline performance to help it cope with Windows Vista. Previously driven by a 1.73GHz Celeron M, the PC jumps to 1.86GHz while also receiving a minimum 1GB of RAM and a 100GB hard drive. It ships to Japan on May 26th for $1,367 but should sell for less when the change reaches North America.
